Study association Bachur

Welcome at Bachur!

Study association Bachur has been and continues to be important to Archaeologystudents in Groningen since 1994. Fellow students are organizing fun and educative activities for you. Think of monthly drinks in local pubs, flintworkshops, trips to musea, and foreign excursions (we’ve visited cities like Dublin, Trier, Liege in recent years).

Through these activities, the association makes sure you get to know your fellow students quickly, both your classmates and those from other years. The first contact you’ll have is by means of an introductory camp. Along with the board you can stay at a prehistoric camp, just before the academic year starts.

It’s also possible to become an active participant within the associations! Every year we search for a first year student to strengthen the board, and you can also become part of one of the committees. Students with affinity with doing presentations or who have great writing skills can help first years get their ‘BSA’ through our Studycommittee. Providing study guidance is an important task of the association. You don’t study by yourself!

The name Bachur is cleverly derived from Bacchus, the Roman god of wine, and from the Dutch word ‘bagger’, roughly translating to mud and blubber, a well known element for archaeologists.

The association is also interesting for international students, since put we serious effort in internationalizing. For example, all our official communications are in English, and many Dutch students find it fun to speak English!
